Course Description

Blockchain technology has the potential of disrupting several industries. However, this technology is still in the search for an application that is massively adopted. The reason why this is the case is twofold. First, it stems from the lack of understanding from the business managers about the core innovation behind a blockchain. Second, it is because this technology, in order to be useful, requires a new way of thinking about the way value is created within the organization. Therefore, in this course participants will learn the true innovation behind a blockchain. Once they have understood what a blockchain really is, they will explore different use cases on how this technology can improve existing business models, solve pain points in organizations, and enable the design of new processes for value creation in the financial sector, and beyond!

Optional tutorials included:

  • Data Science With R
  • Data Science With Python
